:: Superior Technology and Experience win Outokumpu Technology Boddington Flotation Order

The world’s largest flash flotation circuit is to be supplied by Outokumpu Technology to the Boddington Gold Mine Expansion Project in Western Australia.

The four flash flotation SkimAirTM 1800 units - which enhance profitability by optimizing recovery in the grinding circuit - will form part of a complete flotation circuit from Outokumpu Technology for the BGM project jointly owned by Newmont and AngloGold Ashanti.

Outokumpu Technology’s world-renowned SkimAirTM technology will incorporate a new mechanism to handle Boddington’s high throughput.

The combined package of flash flotation and the flotation circuits will be delivered by the end of December 2007.


The Outokumpu Technology package comprises a total of 47 flotation cells including 18 x TankCell® -200s, amongst others.

A train of 10 x 200m³ TankCell® units, believed to be the world’s largest single train of flotation cells installed in a greenfields project, has just recently been commissioned in NSW. The company also launched TankCell® -300, which at 300m³ is believed to be the largest mechanical cell in the world, in June last year.
